There are 2 different envelope shapes and both are really simple to make. They could both be used for male or female recipients too, which is always a bonus in my book!

You could decorate simply with patterned paper /card or add lots more detail with the patterned dies included.

Daffodils (Ruth Hamilton Design image) (affiliate)

 Good morning! It's a snowy but sunny day here in County Antrim, The bulbs and spring flowers are looking beautiful in the borders now. 

I've added a video to my YouTube channel showing how I used Nuvo Alcohol Markers from Tonic Studios to colour the Daffodils digi image from my website

The Daffodils image (from my Spring Flower collection) is really simple to colour and can be done in a couple of different combinations as you can see from the photos. I also show you how to use the Blender Pen as a corrector.

I hope you enjoy watching and I'd love you to visit my website and subscribe to my YouTube channel to see more colouring videos which will follow very soon :)
